Whats for dinner? Isn’t that the evil, never ending question that seems to encompass our mind all day everyday? Maybe that’s just me, but I’m sure you all have the same question on a daily basis! In my house dinner is tough, with a three year old and a newborn there isn’t much time for cooking. That being said one of my husband & son’s favorite meals is fried chicken. It’s not the healthiest, easiest, or fastest meal to cook however they love it so it’s a treat when I have time to make it. Recently I received the Phillips Air Fryer & thought I would give it a shot.
I was skeptical about frying food without oil but I gave it a try and here’s what happened. Our first test was chicken. After cleaning the chicken we breaded it with our favorite recipe. I read the instructions and set the Air Fryer to 390 degrees and turned it on to warm up. Once our chicken was breaded & the fryer was warm we filled the basket with chicken & popped it in for about 10 minutes. I know what you’re thinking, she fed her family raw chicken. I couldn’t believe it myself but 10 minutes is all it took! The chicken came out crispy on the outside just like normal fried chicken (without the nasty grease)! The inside was tender & juicy, it was incredible! What used to take me a half hour or so to cook after prep, I just did in 10 mins! My boys loved it too! Not to mention they got to eat what they like without all the grease!
There is also a recipe book that comes with the fryer that gives you a ton of options! The Air Fryer isn’t just for chicken you can cook steak, fish, potatoes, burgers, with optional accessories you can bake & grill! There is no limit to what you can create in this thing! For me there is nothing better than being able to throw it in, set the timer and go about my business. When the timer sounds, the fryer cuts off so I don’t have to worry about burning the food! It really is incredible all of the things you can make with the Air Fryer and its so easy! The best parts is after were done all I have to do is pull out the basket/pan, rinse them with hot water & throw them in the dishwasher!
